Gyllenhaal pronounced “Yillin HOO-la hey”

By 05.17.10

In this press interview for Prince of Persia, the interviewer asks Jake Gyllenhaal about the correct pronunciation of his name, and he says it’s actually pronounced “yillin-HOO-la hey.”  It’s hard to tell if he’s joking (like pretty much everything with Prince of Persia), but if that’s true, then the spelling of his name shows even more blatant disregard for Phonetics than Laveranues Coles.  I was all set to make fun of it for being Dutch and maybe even bring in the “Händenwaschen Ultra Fail” video from the other day, but then I looked it up and he’s actually Swedish.  Well fine.  All I have to say to that is at least he’s not Dutch, Europe’s pot-smoking gibberish clowns.
